Columbia Forest Products has announced an agreement with Greenwod Tree Farm Fund (GTFF) to use its FSC-certified timber for its MPX hardwood plywood.

Popular panels are superior to those made of fir and pine, according to the manufacturer, because they can suppress the thickness variation and core telegraphing of the veneers.
